    Steeler Oline 2013/14

    Hey guys and gals.

    One area i think needs more work than the others is our O line.

    I'm not sold on Adam's at LT,

    My oline for 2013 would be

    LT Gilbert, LG Pouncy C Legursky RG D Castro RT Beachum

    Reason i've gone this way is because they say our run game will convert to a zone blocking scheme and for that we'll require a mobile line. Pouncy D Castro at guards give us that and if we sign bradshaw at RB, that would be a great fit for that scheme.

    How do you guys feel about our line ?

    As of today it will be:

    LT Gilbert, LG Foster, C Pouncey, RG DeCastro, RT Adams

    Backups Beachum, John Malecki. Legursky isn't even on the team, he is a FA.

    I hope they draft either Cooper or Warmack to be the starter at LG, moving Foster to a backup role. With Beachum and Foster on the bench, they 2 players that can play either guard and RT. All they would need is a swing tackle. Maybe Starks, if he doesn't get much love in free agency.

    Johnathon Cooper hopefully will still be there at pick 17. If not Chance Warmack ain't a bad consolation prize.

    This is what I'm hoping for.

    How mobile is Foster at Guard ? I keep hearing we're going to a zone blocking scheme much like the Broncos use ?

    I thought of Foster as more a power guard than a mobile one ?

    PLus i don't rate adams as a starter. Do you think he played well enough last year to warrant a starting position this ?

    My mistake about Legursky, but although he won't set the world on fire would be good for us to pick him up again as he's good cover for C/G. I personally think he plays Centre better.

    Are you kidding with Doug Legursky? Only reason he was on the team was because he could play multiple positions on the line. He has been absolutely horrible as a center. He was literally a turnstile getting blown back on almost every play. No thank you.

    Either Pouncey starts at center or the Steelers draft another center so Pouncey can move to guard.

    I disagree about Legursky but yes Pouncey should stay at center and draft a guard hopefully in the 1st.

    I agree about Legursky and worth picking back up for cheap.

    Is it official that we are going to the zone blocking scheme?
    The Steeler way...is the only way.
